News

  • Meeting on Tuesday 12th April Cancelled

    Unfortunately our sit and sew meeting on Tuesday 12 April has had to be cancelled as it clashes with a special Holy Week church service. The church had offered us an alternative but after discussion the committee felt that neither option was suitable for our members. We have therefore decided to cancel the meeting. We hope that this does not cause you too many problems. We do, of course, look forward to seeing you all at the following meeting on Tuesday 26th April at 2.00 pm when we will have a talk by Mags Smith on the “Fabric of the Foundling Hospital”. Mags has a quilt shop called The Patchwork Basket in Newent, Notts, and will be bringing items for a sales table.

  • Welcome back

    Forest Quilters are very happy to announce that meetings will be restarting in September 2021. We have decided that meetings will be on the second Tuesday of each month at 7.30 pm and on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 2.00 pm.
